Idiyappam is a traditional South Indian dish made from rice flour. It is also known as string hoppers or noolappam. It is made by steaming a dough made from rice flour, salt, and water. The dough is then pressed through a special mould to form thin strands of dough which are then steamed. Idiyappam is usually served with a spicy coconut-based curry or stew. It can also be served with sweetened coconut milk or jaggery.
